André Kertész

Hungary, 1894 - USA, 1985
André Kertész was a one of the most influential Hungarian photographers. He is best known for his contributions to photojournalism, with distinctive and dynamic compositions in his photographic essays. He maintained a tangible empathy for his subjects, regardless of political or social prejudice, without distinction of the person photographed. 

Born on July 2, 1894 in Budapest, Austria-Hungary, Kertész Andor was from the Jewish middle class. Although his family expects him to pursue a career in the business world, he eventually settles in Paris. In the mid-1920s he met Piet Mondrian, Sergei Eisenstein and many Dadaists. 

Kertész eventually left France and its growing Jewish persecutions. He emigrated to America where he worked for magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and House & Garden, and had solo exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago (1946) and the Museum of Modern Art (NY, 1964).
